Conscious Discipline Summer Institute (CD1) Satellite Location-Chapel Hill, NC

Each year, the educators, parent educators and other professionals who attend this week-long life-changing event discover the secrets to a better way of teaching, parenting and connecting. They then bring a transformational message of hope, safety, connection and problem-solving back to enrich their classrooms, schools, homes and communities.

This is a rare opportunity to experience a live simulcast event with Dr. Bailey, facilitated by Loving Guidance Associate Elizabeth Montero-Cefalo onsite in Chapel Hill. Enjoy the transformational power of the Conscious Discipline Summer Institute (CD1) and connect with like-minded peers in your area for a fraction of the cost of traveling to Orlando! All three Orlando sessions sold out in record time this year, and we expect this satellite event to sell out as well. Do not delay; register today!  Ashley Cooper, founder of Connected At Last, will be a helper at this event!
